Chad Johnson Says He Wants to Fight on Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor Card

Andrew Gould@AndrewGould4Featured ColumnistJune 15, 2017

The megafight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor figures to be pure spectacle. Chad Johnson wants in on the action.

On Aug. 26, the undefeated 40-year-old boxer will come out of retirement to fight an MMA headliner. Nothing about that makes sense, so would adding a former NFL wide receiver to the undercard make the spectacle any stranger?

The man formerly known as Chad Ochocinco is probably joking. Then again, he has competed in the same amount of professional boxing fights as McGregor.
